CFP: Romantic Shakespeare. Shakespeare Yearbook, Winter 2007.

Henry James once noted that to the English an outing to Stratford was
not just a day out, not just a visit to a pretty old town with a
famous dead author, but a pilgrimage to "The Holy of Holies"; the
scene itself of the "nativity." James was being ironic, but to many
editors, and writers, and theatre personalities working in the era of
the English Romantic Movement, grappling with the works of
Shakespeare became a serious devotional duty.
